How To Make a Cascading Wedding Bouquet
STEP 1: The first step to making this beautiful cascading bridal bouquet is to cut a center hole out of your green styrofoam disc. Next hot glue your bouquet holder to the center hole in your green styrofoam disc.
Add three calla lilies to your green styrofoam disc
STEP 2: Cut an inch off of 3 plastic calla lily stems using wire cutters. If paper is noted on the wire, remove it. Add a dab of hot glue to the now exposed wire, and then insert your three calla lilies into your green styrofoam disc.
Lengthen your rose stems using 18 gauge floral wire
STEP 3: To lengthen the stem of your hanging roses, attach 18 gauge floral wire by wrapping it around the stem. Add hot glue to the wire and insert it into the green styrofoam. Attach 2-4 of your roses, repeating the same step to each.
Attach the remaining flowers to your green styrofoam disc
STEP 4: Attach 3-5 hanging carnations, 4-6 large hydrangea heads, 4-6 large peonies, 4-6 light pink roses, and two large lilies. Once all your flowers are attached, remove your bouquet handle, add hot glue, and reattach it to your bouquet holder. Lastly, add your bouquet cover handle.
TIP: Add 18 gauge floral wire to one of your large hydrangea heads before placement to ensure it cascades properly.
